if you want one with storage, I'll probably go a NUC or android device route.  Most people tend to either stream so dont need local storage, or have a NAS setup, so also dont need local storage.

Bit of good news.
As we have a Sony kdl60w850 LED TV (fairly modern), as an afterthought I tried plugging my storage USB into the TV, and it plays almost all video files on the USB except for 2!
Saves me a few $$ in not needing to get something to replace the WD live.

Thanks for the advice though, it does have me wanting to shell out and get a R pi2 for the bedroom TV.

Chromecast. Definitely. Then setup a Plex server and stream from your Plex to the Chromecast. The new ones do AC wifi and will happily play a 1080p stream from the internets.
